  • In one of the more hotly debated episodes on the TNT Talk Show so far, Tony and Tayo go head-to-head arguing the merits of chloroquine as a safe and effective prevention and treatment for Covid-19.
  • Tony wants the drug more thoroughly tested, Tayo thinks that enough doctors have used it successfully for long enough not to warrant special trials.
  • Well, that's what two numpties in midland UK believe, but what do you think? Comment o...

    As you might expect, Tony and Tayo discuss things outside the show. We'd like to share some of these discussions with you. So here are two numpties in 'real life', just joshing around. We hope you'll enjoy it.

  • Tayo thinks that the human race is already doomed. He says that humans behave like a virus, and that the human virus is killing its host, the planet Earth.
  • Tony thinks that although humans are having a harmful effect on the planet, the situation is not yet beyond recovery, and that there is hope for the future.

  • Tony says that online dating is a valuable technological innovation which offers the lonely a chance to form lasting and healthy relationships.
  • Tayo thinks that online dating trivialises dating; men see it a chance for sexual exploration while women see it as a foundation for something deep and meaningful—and they can't both be right.

  • Here's the argument: who should own an embryo? The mother? The father? The State?
  • Tayo thinks the State should own the embryo, and that the State should always fight for the child to be born.
  • Tayo thinks that if one parent wants the child, the State should ensure that the child is born and handed to that parent—but (and it is a big "but")—subsequently, the other parent will have no duty or obligation to the child.
  • Tony dis...

  • Tony thinks the UK's free healthcare service is the envy of the world and long may it continue to be free at the point of delivery.
  • Tayo thinks that the UK's free healthcare service is an easy target for healthcare tourists who take advantage of the long-suffering UK taxpayer; besides, there is too much waste and inefficiency in any free service, and that includes the NHS

  • Tayo thinks that free speech is an absolute right; that most countries have sufficient sanctions to protect society from dangerous rabble-rousers and troublemakers. Therefore, social media platforms have no right to censure anybody. Social media companies have abused their power and governments should take control of them.
  • Tony thinks that social media platforms have a duty to protect the public and have the right, because they are ...

  • Facebook wants your date of birth when you register. Why?
  • Tayo isn't happy about that, nor about myriad other intrusions on his privacy from a wide variety of organisations.
  • Tony is more sanguine, arguing that for the sake of our convenience, we must accept a certain loss of privacy.

    "Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude"
    "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive..."
    "I dwell in possibility"


    Tayo's position:
    No amount of attitude can make a person a safe and able surgeon without aptitude and training.
    Everyone's mission in life is to do more than just survive; that's why we hate boredom and seek opportunity and excitement.
    "I dwell in...

    UFOs–unidentified flying objects–exist; that is indisputable. There are aerial objects performing manoeuvres in a manner which we can interpret as 'flying'. However, the origins of some (a tiny minority) of these objects remains a mystery, hence the appellation,  'unidentified flying objects'.


    In this episode, Tony defends his opinion that UFOs are extra-terrestrial vehicles; flying machines which visit our planet fr...

    Tayo's argument: every nation should have a state-sponsored religion, to help cement its national identity and foster cultural cohesion within its citizenry. The old saying goes, "A nation which prays together, plays together".


    Tony's argument: there's nothing the matter with religion and religious belief, but it would be wrong to have a state-sponsored religion because not every citizen would be a believer of th...

    A gentleman named 'Bill' (who may know a thing or two about computers) is amongst a certain number of people who stand accused of a terrible injustice. Conspiracy theorists accuse these individuals (and sometimes, their charitable foundations too) of using the global vaccination programme as a covert means to control human population by dispensing vaccines which do more harm than good.

    Tony lends the conspiracy an ear; Tayo ...

    A strong democracy depends upon a well-informed and well-educated electorate. Yet isn't it true that in western democracies and elsewhere, by-and-large indolence and indifference has taken pride of place and most voters today lack the intelligence, information, even interest, to cast their votes intelligently? In this heated debate, Tony has confidence in the electorate, Tayo is a little more... cynical.
